    Superman Cartoon Stock (Paramount, 1941). Argentinean Poster (29" X 42.5").
    When Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created their "strange visitor from another planet," they could little have known that they were giving birth to one of the greatest pop cultural icons of the twentieth century. Since his debut in 1938, Superman has been featured in comic books, comic strips, cartoons, movies, TV shows and more around the world, and is now one of the most recognizable fictional characters in history. Superman's first appearance on the silver screen was in a brilliant series of cartoons produced by the legendary Fleischer Studios; in fact, the very first of the series was nominated for an Academy Award in 1942 for Best Short Subject, Cartoons. This beautiful Argentinean stock sheet of "El Super Hombre" shows light toning, touch up to fold wear, and lightly discolored paint where touch up was applied to the background and borders, but the artwork is largely unaffected. These stock sheets are highly prized amongst both comic collectors and poster collectors for their brilliant colors and great images of the Man of Steel. Fine on Linen.
